A Ride full of reflection

Nice evening on Tuesday, trails were dry, time was however short. After Sundays crushing news though, I was determined to get a spin out.

Pretty straightforward solo ride up to the hill and down San Marino, but had a lot of thinking time. Thinking of the rides we did with Dave and the Darlington crew. Every one a great ride out. Also thinking about the fragility of life and the stark reminder that we are all mortal.

This life is no rehearsal, we dont get second chances... so we need to live it to the full. I'm fortunate that I have a hobby that allows me to do that and blessed with great friends who make it that bit better.

I'm told that Dave carried a quote in his wallet by James Dean.... it read "Dream as if you will live forever, live as if you will die today."

Very apt.
